The article reports on sociological reflections about the uses of dramaturgical analysis in contemporary social sciences, which are based on extensive experience of drama teaching at the University of Brasília. It also searches to reveal the affinities between Sociology and the scenic arts, by the use of the theatrum mundi metaphor applied to different sociological subjects. It presents an updated exegesis of the dramaturgical analysis perspective and shows its path on contemporary studies about performance in life, in culture and on stage.
